Rude and picky.
I was a customer of this establishment for over 5 years - both consigning and buying - when I went in one day (of many) to consign a box of clothes. The (new-ish) staff member was so rude to me, I was shocked! There were no other customers in the store and yet she didn't seem to want to be bothered with me. She acted as though I was interrupting her and she was going to be doing me a favor by looking at my clothes. I would like to say that this is an apalling attitude for a store that without consigners would have no business!
When she FINALLY decided to look at my clothes, she proceeded to pick them apart. The "accept" pile was noticeably smaller than the "reject" pile and many of the rejected clothes looked much like the ones already hanging in the store! Being an experienced consigner, I knew what to bring in and what not to bother with, and yet she still rejected more than half of my box with made-up, baloney explanations.
To make matters worse, when I called to complain to the owner, she defended the rude employee and was even more rude to me herself! What happened to customer service?!
In addition to this experience, I once consigned a toy that they didn't sell, but then couldn't find all the pieces of when it came time to return it to me. They offered me nothing in return and basically implied that I was consigning at my own risk and they would take no responsibility for my property while it was in their possession.
I will NEVER set foot in this store again and would advise anyone else to do so at their own risk.
We love Kids Korner!!. I have been consigning with Kids Korner for several years. I just love this store. It is unfortunate that this women had this experience. If the store doesn't want to take an item and tells you to bring it in the fall then you should do that. They have expertise when brown and black shoes sell best and that would be the fall. I take all my excellent items to Kids Korner and I make plenty of money. Of course, I usually spend it back in the store. They sell only the best when it comes to kids clothing. I would highly recommend this store to shop and consign. They are my first choice to shop when it comes to outfitting my kids on a budget.
Poor Handling of consignment, items returned in poor shape.
I dropped off items for Summer consignment in June of 2007 and it was my first time consigning items with Kids Korner. There were immediate signs of problems during my 'consultation' on the items that I had brought in. Let me just say that I have consigned plenty of other places and knew what to expect. First, they did not write down or list any of the items that were accepted for consignment. Then I signed the contract and some other papers and was not provided copies of anything. Second, I had items that were not accepted for consignment and was told they were either "too worn" or "would be better in the fall" were a total load of lies. The items that were deemd "too worn" were very much on par with items currently on the shelves/what I had seen there in the past. Since I had consigned in the past, I knew what items would be acceptable/unacceptable. The other items that I was told "would be better for the fall season" were little boys dress shoes, in black and brown. Your basic loafers and tie up shoes, both brand new. Again, there were already pairs of these shoes out to be sold. I would have just prefer they tell the truth about why they wouldn't accept the items instead of lying.
Here's my biggest problem with this store. Included in this consignment were three very expensive dresses. Two were little girl's wedding type dresses, worn only once and brought in freshly dry cleaned/on hangars. They were purchased at David's Bridal for over $100. The other dress was a Jessica McClintock, with the tags still on it, also on a hanger. When I went to pick up my remaining items, they had stuffed all three of these dressed into a paper shopping bag. Now I understand that you sign all the papers saying that they aren't liable for damage, etc, but deliberately doing this to my dresses is unacceptable. I will NEVER do business with them again, nor will I recommend them to anyone I know and will tell everyone I come into contact with not to shop there.
Editorial Review. This boutique offers maternity-wear and kids gear in sizes 0 to 16 from favorite brands and smart consignment selections too.
Great store for buying and selling. Nice and clean with friendly service. A+++. If you are in the market to consign your items or just looking to buy, this store is great. I have been purchasing items from Kids Korner since I was pregnant with my first child in 2001 and have always found things I need at great prices. Since Oct. 2006 I have been consigning items at Kids Korner and their consignment policy is great. They are very friendly and accommodating. I have also consigned at another consignment shop and can say from experience that KIDS KORNER is by far the best choice. Go check them out, you won't be disappointed.
